    Uh...what? @ is still shift-2 on any keyboard, including Apple keyboards (which, by the way, probably won't work on a PC, due to the completely different key set).

    Lets get it right.

    Shift+2 on a standard british keyboard is "
    Shift+2 on a standard American Keyboard is @
    On a mac keyboard, @ is shift 2, wherever you are in the world

    I prefer @ at shift 2, even though I live in the UK

    I understand what you are trying to say but the proper term for your so called "hackmac" is hackintosh.
